Hey friends! Nominations for the 2013 WitOut Awards were announced last night, and we snagged five nods!

Thanks to all who nominated us! Voting is open to the public through December 21, so go here and give us some votes please!
While we’re jackin’ ourselves off, might as well show you this: Hollywood comedian Aaron Hertzog, who lives in Los Angeles, included two of our sketches — “MSA3000″ and “Imposters” — in his Top 5 Sketches of 2012 list. Thanks, Big Time Comedy Man!
Another thing you should check out is this cool review of our Philly Sketchfest show back in November. Thanks to Nicole Finkbiner and Philly Weekly for the nice write-up!
ONE LAST THING: Last week, Secret Pants debuted their latest video, “Moon Bounce TV”. We were lucky enough to have bit parts in it, alongside our friends in ManiPedi as well as Marc Summers of Nickelodeon fame. It’s a super funny video that you should watch so go do that NOW.
